Recent Workplace Stalking questions

I recently was interviewed gher position and one manager

I recently was interviewed for a higher position and one manager continued to asked me questions based on my physical appearance and abilities. I am overweight and she asked me more than once if I could handle the physicality of being on me feet which each time I told her yes. She also asked me if my disability, of wearing hearing aids, would limit me at all. Also she mentioned that she heard I have employee relationship issues with people but in reality the only complaint I have in my file is an issue with another manager who is her fiancé. I fee she bullied me and retaliated against me based on personal feelings she has against me

I recently accepted a position as a maintenance

I recently accepted a position as a maintenance supervisor...my salary is $41,000 annually...I am an exempt employee...I generally work 55-65 hours per week...I know the regulations are changing Dec. 1ST, and the threshold for paying overtime has risen...as of that date any hours over 40 hours per week must be paid at time and a half...I have inquired as to what the company plans to do in my situation since I work so many hours...the answer I was given is that they aren't going to give me 8-9000 more annually to bring me above the threshold...they have said they probably won't pay the overtime...I have inquired about perhaps taking lesser pay and being paid overtime...my reviews are great and I left a better paying job because this was a dayshift job with better benefits...but I have done and do very little of what I was hired to do and what my job description entails...my manager also told me they might just roll me to a maintenance technician position at $3 less per hour...and hire another maintenance supervisor at less pay and exempt...something seems fundamentally wrong about this...this is a large private company who has had issues in the past of lawsuits where they required workers to put their fear on and take it off and give incoming shifts information off the clock...so I think the die has been cast...what are my rights and is this actionable?

If an employer finds that they made a mistake in my past

If an employer finds that they made a mistake in my past payroll reporting and did not withhold enough taxes and three years later issue me a W2 (even though I no longer work for them) to pass through the Fica and MC takes they had to pay - is this legal for them to do?

Relating to an Independent Contract and a non-compete

relating to an Independent Contract and a non-compete clause:"Will not compete with (redacted) by soliciting business from or performing Services for the Customer for at least one (1) year following either (i) the negotiation of a potential Work Order with a Customer regarding the IC by (redacted) or (ii) the completion of the most recent Work Order with that particular Customer."If the contract is with a Services company that hires an independent such as me for only "on-demand" jobs of short duration. If I say I am "unavailable for a couple of days" and then another Services company offers me the same job - if i say yes does it violate the above even if the "Customer" does not contract me - the "Services" company does??

My boss terminated me without any sort of explanation, and

My boss terminated me without any sort of explanation, and did so via text message. I understand that I work in an at will state and there is not much I can do, but, I had an exemplary performance record and made very good money, and up until that point, hadn't had a single complaint. I asked foran explanation and was refused one. I told him I planned to come to our place of employment the next day, and any subsequent days that it was necessary until I received one. He didn't reply, but, a co-worker told me that they were told if I came into the restaurant, they were to call the cops. Again, I was thoroughly confused. My friend and co-worker was unable to get an answer as to why I was terminated, either, until our bosses partner finally felt some compassion and told her what happened, which she then relayed to me. On the day I was terminated, we had several things go wrong - our point of sale system was not working, we ran out of our most popular dish, etc. I text my frustrations of the day to my friend and co-worker, telling her I had been near tears and ready to walk out, being a bit hyperbolic. Anyway, we got through the day, and the only person I said anyting to was my friend via text. When she came to work, after I had left, our boss asked for her phone to install an app on it, in case they had problems similar to what I had dealt with that afternoon. While he had her phone, without either her or my permission, and unbeknownst to either of us, he opened and read the texts between us. He immediately text me and fired me for the content of the text messages, although I still have not officially been offered that explanation. I have yet to confront him with that information, as my friend still works there and I don't want to threaten her job, as well. He read texts that were private communication between my friend and I without permission, has not paid me for my work, has threatened to call the cops on me, and accused me of stealing from him - which I did not do. I was a fantastic employee and am now missing nearly $400 a week in much needed income as a result of something terrible he did. Do I have any recourse at all in this matter?
